Marcia Franklin talks about fair trade issues with Doug Dirks, the CEO of Ten Thousand Villages, a fair trade retailer. The two discuss the definition of the term "fair trade," how consumers can know if they're buying a fair trade item, how artisan communities use the money derived from the sale of their products, some of the criticisms of the movement, and what Dirks views as its future.

How about a bike chain frame?


Whether you’re a biker or just love the abstract pattern, you’ll enjoy this unique bike chain frame. A fun product and innovative recycling, from artisans of Noah’s Ark in Moradabad, India. Sized to hold a 4-inch diameter photo.

The cost of metals has skyrocketed in recent years, which has had a devastating effect on the local economy and on the lives of metal workers in Moradabad. Noah’s Ark has worked hard to train artisans in using alternative metals and materials, as well as to create distinctive designs such as this product.

  • Recycled bicycle chain
  • Fits 4-inch diameter photo
  • 5D inches
  • Made in India
